I can recommend the airstream powered cap with forced air. It is comfortable and very effective, but like all good things comes at a cost. Sometimes a bargain can be had on various selling sites. no price on a pair of lungs or eyes though.

I use a Trend Airshield Pro for my dust protection (I have a beard and glasses so most disposables are useless) and its been one of the best workshop investments I've ever made. I was also very impressed when a manufacturing issue caused the headband to break spontaneously after owning it for several years, Trend replaced the whole mechanism with no quibbles.
I'm not sure how well it would fit a child's head but worth a thought.

I have just bought a new Trend Airshield Pro for £176 not the £269.96 being asked by Trend. To say I'm disappointed is an understatement.
To start with, it's heavy.
Then, quoting from the manual, "Battery packs should be initially charged for 24 hours and 14 hours thereafter when fully discharged. Full working capacity of the battery will not be achieved until the battery has been through 3 or 4 complete charging cycles. Please note the light will not extinguish when a full charge has been achieved."
24 hours for an initial charge & 14 hours thereafter is what I would expect for Ni-cad batteries which have a memory effect when not fully discharged. Ambiguously it says "when fully discharged" not, must be fully discharged. How the heck are you supposed to tell when the batteries are charged. Very poor.
